COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Hop Knot IPA is made only from American malt and lots of American hops, which produce a big, broad-shouldered, hoppy beer backed up by a character as warm as, well, Mom and apple pie… Hop Knot IPA get its peculiar name from the weaving of four different hops added at four separate times during the brewing process. Including our cavernous hop-back, which gets so stuffed with whole leaf hops that we feel genuine guilt for its excess. Hop Knot is an ale that is to be enjoyed with friends, spicy food or any time you need a good hop fix without the harsh bitterness. We hope you enjoy this pioneering beer made in the bold spirit of Americans everywhere.

Cotton candy & hops nose. Strong bittering hops, rich malt - almost to right but I dig it. A hint of alcohol @ the finish w. more rich malt. Almost borders on a strong ale.

On tap at Scottsdale location. Cask version. Pours a medium amber with off-white head and great lacing. Nose is caramel malt, grapefruit and pine. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma. Medium, creamy mouth feel. Really good.

Handbottle from FlacoAlto. Pours a crystal clear, medium golden-amber color. A small, foamy white head settles to a patchy, bubbly layer, scattered micro-spots of lace marking the glass. The aroma shows bright, hoppy citrus notes of grapefruit, orange, and lemon over a light bed of toasty bread notes and delicate toffee. The flavor is the mirror image of the nose, a lightly sweet, toasty malt backdrop with a fresh blend of citrusy hops. Excellent drinkability and supreme balance without any annoying astringency. Medium-light bodied and moderately carbonated, this one goes down really easy. There aren’t many bells and whistles, but sometimes well-executed simplicity is best. Great session IPA.

Pint at 1702 with FlacoAlto. Very fruity and hoppy on the nose. Malt in there too. Flavors were more citrus hops with grapefruit and tangerine and a rather floral finish. Pretty good.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2011 On tap at the brewpub 1/13/09. Light gold color and heavily filtered. Small white head. Nose is floral with more hop profile than the Raj IPA. Taste comes off very hoppy and bitter with a small malt background. Mouth is full, fluffy and sharp. I prefer the Raj IPA to this one.

tap-Tucson Beer Fest ahh, this must have been added into the database by squidget(Sebastian). He and I sampled this brew at the same time. This brew has a wonderful citrus aroma full of pineapple, grapefruit and tangerine. Unfortunately, the aroma was the best thing about this brew-pretty one dimensional. not much malt to speak of, but thats definately not what this sytle of brew is about. Good one dimensional brew nontheless

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JAN 13, 2004
Big hop character. Bitterness is balanced nicely. Fairly light in color, decent sized head. A nice cross between a IPA and a pale ale. Hope this becomes a regular beer.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2005 The citrus hop aroma flavor made this a good beer. Good carbination and lacing. Has to be one of the better beers I’ve had lately. Went down easy on the palate.

11/15/05 Had three of these at a golf event and had to re-rate the aroma because it had more of a bold citrus aroma and flavor as the first rating was sampler and this was full beer.

On tap. This ale pours a light orange gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is citrusy and earthy. A medium bodied Pale Ale/IPA. Malts are caramel and sweet, touch of toffee. Hops are citrusy and floral. A touch earthy as well. Nice balance. This beer tastes like a cross between an American Pale Ale, a India Pale Ale and an Amber. Hoppy without a lot of hop bitterness, with a fair amount of malt sweetness. Definitely not to any style, but an interesting beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
